Men at Work in Qatar

The Arabian Peninsula is not very popular between our contributors and we have therefore scant information about its roadsigns. Still, one find may be enough to bring surprise, and for some people worry even.

We know from many finds on this site that roadsigns often betray hidden currents in society. This Man probing his heap may very well be an indication that Russia is trying to expand its influence far beyond its immediate neighbours.

Drawings of this type —a man with a loose head and at least one severed extremity, probing an undulating heap— are normally limited to countries belonging to the former Soviet Union (e.g. Lithuania, Armenia, Georgia, …). Qatar is far outside that zone.
